The finals of the French Open 2021 on Sunday produced one of the best ever matches in the history of the tournament at Philippe-Chatrier. It was an epic battle between World No. 1 Novak Djokovic and World No. 5 Stefanos Tsitsipas as the duo played out an unbelievable game that lasted 4 hours and 11 minutes. After the Greek tennis ace took an early lead, Djokovic bounced back in style to win the five-set thriller 6-7 (6), 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 to win his 19th ever Grand Slam title. The Serbian is now just one title away from Nadal and Federer's record of 20 championships.
